Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge proudly celebrates 25 years of being wild and welcoming. Please join us for an exploration of the past, present, and future of this beautiful public space.
The entire event is free and family-friendly, with hands-on activities for kids, plenty of accessible trails to explore, and since it's a birthday party, there will of course be cake!
Walk the historic Chicken Creek channel (a portion of the Refuge that is usually closed for access) and learn about plans to restore its natural flow.
Check out the historic onion sorter we'll have on display (yes, it still runs, and yes, we will turn it on!). Sound random? Part of the refuge actually used to be an onion farm and it's a tie-in with the city of Sherwood's Onion Festival taking place the same day. Now you have TWO reasons to head our way.
Try out the DAYCATION scavenger hunt. The Refuge is an active participant in the Daycation Mobile App and Daycation.info website and is working on a special Daycation just for this event. Be sure to stop by the DAYCATION table to get your scavenger hunt materials, NO SMARTPHONE REQUIRED!
There is no fee to enter or participate in any of the activities.
There is on-site parking, but it is limited.
TriMet Bus Routes 93 and 94 stop at the refuge on the southbound side of Hwy 99.
